This "battery drain" issue results from two basic reasons:

  • Windows 10 loads too many background applications that consume battery power even if they are not being used.
  • The "Fast Startup" feature.

Besides that, the following are some other reasons for laptop battery problems.

  • Too many processes running in the background
  • A heavy application (like games or any other desktop app ) can also draib the bettery.
  • Any recent system changes,causing the fast draining of the battery.
  • The system is running on high brightness or other advanced options.
  • Too many online and network connections can also cause this problem.
  • The firmware installed can be corrupted, causing a power failure.
  • Bluetooth and wi-fi are enabled.
  • Other reasons can be a faulty driver, too many peripheral devices, and so on.

The issue could be with the battery itself:

If your laptop battery is user-serviceable (check the support site or docs) shop for a replacement battery and have at it. If yours is a non-user-serviceable battery, you’ll have to bring it to a repair shop to get a new battery installed.


Battery tips: When the laptop’s battery is below 20 percent, charge it. Otherwise, it puts a strain on it and results in reduced charging capacity. Also do not overcharge your laptop.
